Meet Gaukhar Akhmetova-Atherton.

This incredibly flexible woman became part of the Cirque du Soleil when she was only 17 years old.

She was part of the "Varekai" and "Iris" productions from 2006 to 2012.

"Varekai" told the famous story of Icarus while "Iris" took place in Los Angeles, California, and gave a whole new meaning to the artful cinema.

Now, Gaukhar is married to Andrew Atherton and has two kids.

Andrew Atherton is a British gymnast, so they obviously have something awesome in common. Moreover, they have two kids named Kamali and Kaysen.

Kamali is only 3 years old.

But even at such a young age, she already looks fit enough to be a performer in her own. Here, she's already assisting her mother.

Kaysen is only a year old and he is absolutely adorable.

It's good to know that Kamali is always there to help her little brother out.

Gaukhar loves to perform stunts with her kids.

Loading...

Aside from continuing her passion, she is able to share her skills with her kids who are surely proud of her achievements.

Gaukhar is happy to note that Kamali seems eager to be like her one day.

Of course, small steps should be taken, and she is not forcing her to be like her. Kamali too wants to be like her mom.

Their family looks totally cool and happy together.

Loading...

One of the best things about them is that they prioritize the health of their kids over anything.

Gaukhar feels so happy that her daughter is talented and eager to learn.

Loading...

After all,  who wouldn't want to have as awesome a life as their mom had? Gaukhar is a hand balancer, a contortionist, and most importantly, a wonderful wife and mother.

Let's hope we see more of them in the future.

Gaukhar's career in Cirque du Soleil might be over, but her passion is not and she can still have as much fun as when she was still just 17 years old.
